How many time do the people of Murfreesboro, TN have to tell them? ‘Build your mosque somewhere else. Islam, the religion of hatred, is NOT WELCOME here?’
Of course, this is assuming the muslims did not set the fire themselves to gain sympathy as they are often known to do?
Federal officials are investigating a fire that started overnight at the site of a new Islamic center in a Nashville suburb. Ben Goodwin of the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the fire, which burned construction equipment at the future site of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, is being ruled as arson. The fire destroyed one piece of construction equipment and damaged three others. Gas was poured over the equipment to start the fire, Anderson said.
Opponents of a new Islamic center say they believe the mosque will be more than a place of prayer; they are afraid the 15-acre site that was once farmland will be turned into a terrorist training ground for Muslim militants bent on overthrowing the U.S. government. “They are not a religion. They are a political, militaristic group,” Bob Shelton, a 76-year-old retiree who lives in the area, told The Associated Press.
“No mosque in Murfreesboro. I don’t want it. I don’t want them here,” Evy Summers said to WTVF. “Go start their own country overseas somewhere. This is a Christian country. It was based on Christianity.” CBS NEWS
